Three Vail teens nabbed for school bus damage

A trio of high school seniors that alleged vandalized 76 Vail School District buses have been arrested, according to the Pima County Sheriff’s Department.

Bus tires were deflated and some vehicles sprawled with graffiti, delaying school earlier this week.

Restoring the bus fleet took money and manpower.

The three arrested were 18-year-olds Andrew Christ and Taylor King and 17-year-old Jeff Comisso, according to Pima County sheriff’s spokeswoman Dawn Barkman.

She said the trio turned themselves in Wednesday afternoon.

King is the son of district governing board member Debbie King, according to a report in the Arizona Daily Star.

So authorities got three of those responsible.

Now the fun can begin. I’d say jail and juvie time is on the agenda to teach them a fine lesson.

But they may run into other inmates who will teach them even worse behavior, like how to commit bigger crimes or how not to get caught (although I wouldn’t really take advice from a jail inmate on how not to get caught for a crime).

Making them pay for the cost of repairs is ideal.

A number of you chimed in with good ideas earlier this week.

One post explained how making vandals clean buses in New Mexico only led to them stealing things while they were cleaning.


What would work to teach teens a lesson, for this or other crimes?

Parents, how do you reprimand your teens? Does it work?

Did you pull any silly senior pranks? Were you caught and punished?

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
